Two Pianos, Eight Hands: Fitkin, Hammond, Stott, WallSouthbank Centre, Queen Elizabeth Hall, SE1 8XX, [Venue Details]
Graham Fitkin and friends are united for the composer’s landmark piano works, a Fitkin world premiere, and music by his influences and successors.
Graham Fitkin has been ‘mucking about with the piano’ since childhood. The results are energetic, beguilingly and utterly distinctive.
At the heart of this concert are works for multiple pianos that shot to fame when Fitkin’s album Flak was released on Factory Records in 1990.
In the title track, the eight hands of four pianists caper around the white notes of two pianos with irresistible rhythmic verve and harmonic bonhomie.
